An Old Friend

My finger lingered over the key. I needed to end our online friendship. But it’s hard to end things with a friend that died three years ago.

    This moved me. I still have my mother on my instant messaging list, and she died five years ago. I can’t bring myself to delete her from the list, though.

    This rings so true, especially in this age where we’re so interconnected through electronics. Great job!

    And why should you? It’s a homage to a loved on that takes up no space. This is an awesome take on this week’s theme. Really impressive.

    My son Will Garland has a way with words. This example is masterful. Short, concise and to the point but with lingering aftertaste. Very thought provoking. Powerful and emotional at the same time. I recently purged my contacts because so many people from the past are now dead, retired, moved or out of business. It was a grim reminder of the fact that change is constant and forever with us. Good job, Will!
